Thanks for sharing this! I'm using this to just temporarily hold a microswitch while I solder leads to it. These switches are used on my CNC machine as "limit" switches and somehow I manage to destroy them occasionally. I've attached a small connector to make it easier to change them out but it is still somewhat difficult to hold the switch, a soldering iron, and the wires while soldering.

I now just screw your design to a support board and solder away. As printed, the fit is a little loose, but, to be expected due to variances in 3D printing. I could reduce the size a little but not really required for just soldering 2 wires. Thanks again, saved me some design time.

Awesome, I'm glad to hear it!

This will be perfect for my dust collector setup, thanks mr bommerts.
